Christmas Brolga

December 19, 2004

It's heading into Christmas week, and I always associate Brolgas with Christmas. As a kid I used to listen to a Christmas carol called Carol of the Birds. I just looked up the words — it starts with the line:

Out on the plains the Brolgas are dancing, Lifting their feet like warhorses prancing.

This one was seen, today, at the Adelaide Zoo.
